Lake End Park Campground, Morgan City, Louisiana

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

I reviewed this camp ground before but felt I needed to update from our most recent visit.
Overall, the campground is the same. Quiet, clean and most sites very roomy. Except for the one we were in.
This review is to warn everyone to try their best to stay away from spot #50!
After having stayed in this park multiple time, this was the first TRULY disappointing spot we have ever had.
The way the hook-ups are they are placed very far to the back of the sight and there is a tree you have to work around to be tied in. I have 25' of sewage line and it was stretched also my power cord is an easy 30+' and I was almost stretched all the way out. To make it all work we had to park towards the back on the site and that put us right in front of site #51 hook-ups. Basically, the room we had coming out the camper was the length of the awning. So sitting outside under the awning was very cramped due to the utility equipment (water, power) being right at our door step.
Thankfully we were camping with friends so we ended up spending a lot of time in site #51 (great site BTW).
It seems like they were trying to squeeze a site between 49 & 51 just to have another site.
Overall our stay was uneventful and nice even with the inconvenient site set-up. We camped at Lake End Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The lake is the big draw.
Folks use the boat launch to access not only a day on the lake but to run across to the beautiful bayous on the other side.
Also, this is south Louisiana. Bring bug spray or even your fogger if you have one. This is bayou country and the Louisiana state "bug" likes to make an appearance just as the sun goes down.

Clearwater RV Park, Carriere, Mississippi

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice quiet park. Plenty of shade trees and beautiful flowers all around. The fishing pond had plenty of nice perch and my daughter even caught a nice bass as well. It is a little over 5 miles off the interstate so there is absolutely NO traffic noise except for the occasional vehicle traveling along the county road. I especially enjoyed my mornings, drinking my coffee and enjoying the numerous birds that seemed to be everywhere. Not sure if it was the time of year or just lucky but they had many different species to enjoy watching. The only thing we had issue with was our cell signal was hit or miss, which for me was kind of nice for a change. We camped at Clearwater RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hollywood Casino RV Park, Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a pretty nice park considering its for a casino. Nice sized sites, paved & leveled. Even though they do not have the pool at the RV park it is not to far to the resort. Easy access to the beach from here short drive and lots of white sand to chose from. I marked off kid friendly but to be honest I think it is more along the lines for teens then little ones. But still not a bad place to stay if you want to use the park as a jump off point to Gulf Port or Biloxi, which are only a 20-30 minute ride. We camped at Hollywood Casino RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sandpiper RV Resort, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a new park that was just opened so it was in first class shape. The pads were fully cemented and level as well as roomy. Getting into the sites very easy, you could tell the owners really thought out the layout so they could accommodate big rigs. The park, from what I could tell, is the only one on the east side of the island. It is located right by Stewart Beach which is really nice, close enough to the beach but far enough away you rig does not get full of sand! You can walk out the back of the park right to the beach. I thought the price was a bit high compared to the others in the area but I guess due to the location and being more of a resort then a camp ground, made the difference. We camped at Sandpiper RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

DeGray Lake Resort State Park, Bismarck, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very, VERY nice park. It was clean and roomy as well as quiet. The park has all kinds of activities to do if wanted. They also have a great beach area as well as picnic areas to enjoy. There are also all kinds of trials to explore through out the park. The only down fall, if there is any here, was that the bathhouses did not have AC or even some type of vent fans to help move the stuffy warm air out of the rooms. Other than that is was one of the best parks we have stayed out in awhile. We will be sure to go back here on our next visit to Arkansas. We camped at DeGray Lake Resort State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clearwater Resort, Hot Springs, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We were a little disappointed by the condition of this campground. It looks like this was a first class park at one time, but was clearly set up for older campers. The sites were very tight, we have a trailer with (2) slides on each side on the camper and the spot was so tight, both of them kind of sealed off the camp site. The bath house that was close to our area had only (1) men and (1) ladies room, AND the men’s was out of service. The club house and clothes washing room were locked up. The beautiful “waterfall” that is shown on the website was a man-made thing, and even it was not functioning. They did have a nice clean pool that had big clean bath house, but that was all the way to the front of the campground that we had to take our truck to get to. The park itself is on a waterway that leads to the lake and is very nice. They have a couple boat launches as well as a beach area to enjoy. The sites by the water all had private docks but all but (2) were flagged off due to the wood being rotten. We were lucky, ours was in service and a very nice way to spend the afternoon during the sunset. Talking to the lady at the front desk, she stated the park was under new management and they were working on trying to get all these things resolved. I’m not sure how long it has been since this “new” management has had this property but some things could have been made available to the park like the club house and washroom both of which looked to be in good shape. We made the best of what we had and the lady was very, very friendly. I hope the new owners will get this park back to what it used to be, a very nice campground, until then I would look around the area to see if there may be other options.

Lake End Park Campground, Morgan City, Louisiana

Date of Stay: April, 2010 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice park with plenty of space on each camper spot. The access to the lake is easy and there are plenty of areas to just sit and fish on the side of the bayous. The lake also has a sandy beach area that is nice for the kids to play in the lake. The campground is very clean as well as the bath house but I found them be a bit old and run down. The cost was the most surprising part; at $40 a night I found that to be kind of high considering that they have no pool, cable TV or internet access. I was told by a fellow camper that they had just gone up on the price it had been $30 for a very long time. Even so, we still enjoyed our weekend and would camp here again.
